WALLKILL, N.Y. -- A worker was killed early Wednesday morning when he fell into a vat of molten lead at an Orange County company, state police said.

Jose Sartillo, 24, of Middletown, worked at the Revere Smelting and Refining Corporation in Wallkill, police said.

Police said Sartillo was working near the smelting kettle when he fell in at about 1 a.m. and was severely burned over his entire body. The death was probably instantaneous, Orange County Coroner Tom Murray said.

The lead was 9,000 degrees, according to Murray.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration was investigating how Sartillo fell into the vat.
